They do exist: people who bitterly regret their decision to start breeding “silver Labradors”. Should we expose them? Yes, for various reasons. Should we listen to what they have to say? Absolutely, because others could learn from it. We could learn from it.
Should we give them a second chance? Without a doubt, yes.
I don’t believe in the proverb “Once a thief, always a thief”. A person who has bred dilutes in the past and came to the conclusion that it was a terrible mistake, will probably never make the same mistake again.
There might be “silver” breeders out there hesitating to “come out”. If they see that the Labrador community is willing to forgive them and embrace them in their midst, this might just be the thing they need to come forward and change their lives.
This is a thought that should be taken into consideration.
